Nairobi: Bermudan all rounder Lionel Cann is to be sent home from the current tour of Kenya following his two-match suspension from one-day cricket, team officials said here on Thursday.
Cann was banned for two one-day internationals for showing dissent to South African umpire Ian Howell during Bermuda's second one-day international match against Kenya last Saturday.
The 35-year-old player was not in the starting line-up for the four-day Intercontinental Cup which started in Nairobi on Thursday.
Cann, who watched the match from the terraces, is said to be waiting to catch the next plane home after being recalled by the Bermuda Cricket Board as a punitive measure for his disrespect at the umpire after being given out lbw.
Cann's departure is a blow for the Bermudans, who head straight to the United Arab Emirates for another Intercontinental Cup tie after their promising opener Stephen Outerbridge suffered a serious knee injury at the beginning of the Kenyan tour and has been ruled out of the two first class tournaments.
